NZ Hall of Fame. 50 Remarkable Kiwis by Maria Gill. Illus. by Bruce Potter

NZ Hall of Fame 50 Remarkable Kiwis by Maria Gill, Illus Bruce Potter. Pub, New Holland Publishers, 2011.

Did you know that Scott Dixon’s parent were stock car drivers and that Scott won the Indie 500 in 2008? or that BMX rider Sarah Walker wore T-shirt and Tracksuit pants to school every day?

Who is the eldest Bic or Boh Runga? Did you know that Keisha Castle-Hughes once featured as a moslem girl in a Prince video clip and that Rhys Darby wanted to be an Airforce Jet fighter pilot?

You can find this out in this excellent book on famous New Zealanders.

Each portrait is two pages long with career highlights and short biography. Ideal for speech writing or a start to further study.

Each famous person is beautifully characterised by Bruce Potter. Original photographs and diagrams provide excellent information.

Importantly the famous are catagorised into Leaders, Pioneers, Scientists, Inventors, Artists and Sports people and all the big names are there as are recent celebrities.

Did you know Peter Jackson started making films with the family movie camera when he was 8 years old? I could go on like this for ages.

Get it and read it yourself. Absolutely essential for all school libraries and a great addition to home libraries.
